Hey all,

I'll be in Quebec to shoot the World Champs and am keen to ride and shoot in Quebec and Ontario after that if there are any Eastern Canadians out there keen to go for a ride or throw down for the camera.

I'll be in Quebec roughly 29 Aug to 16 September (in Mont Saint Anne 31 Aug - 5 Sept but busy shooting Worlds) and in Ontario roughly 17 September to 13 October.

I'll be riding with my girl and hanging with her family a bit in Ontario but I'm keen to do a bit of shooting out East and we're both keen to ride as much as we can.

If there's anyone out there who's keen to maybe do a bit of shooting or just go for a ride with us in Ontario or Quebec drop me a line.

Alternatively, any advice on where to ride near Quebec City and in Ontario (pref within few hundred kilometres of Toronto/Ottawa - my girl's' family are in Combermere) would be much appreciated.

Cheers, Patrick

Thanks for the info, will check it out. I'm also interested in good old-fashioned non-lift accessed/non-bike park riding if anyone out there has got any suggestions. Preferably technical single-track, don't mind if I have to grovel up a mountain for an hour to get to it. Berms and jumps are all good but roots, rocks ruts even better!! I'm keen to check out a bunch of bike parks and ride DH but keen to do some all mountain/freeride stuff as well. Any info appreciated. Cheers, Patrick

Sounds good to me - we'll definitely check out Kelso, keen to ride the chair but will definitely also check out the old DH track, sounds good. See you on the trails, Patrick

I reckon that you are more of an XC type of guy. If so, check out Vallée Bras-du-Nord in St-Raymond-de-Portneuf (about an 30 minutes Northwest of Quebec City). They have lots of good trails of varying difficulty http://www.valleebrasdunord.com/velo_an.html

If you want to do some freeride/drops/jumps/north shore, then Mont-Bélair and Montchatel (15 minutes from Quebec City) are excellent non-lift-access spots. By far my favorite. I'd be happy to show you the way.

Whatever you do, on your way to Ontario, make a detour by Bromont. An absolute must!

Hi grfreeride, thanks for all the info! I know Bromont has had a World Cup there so the riding has to be good, I'm definitely keen to check it out. But I will wait until my girl meets me in Quebec on 8/9 sept before I make any definite plans. However, I'm keen to check out Bromont and also the two other spots you mentioned if possible while we're in Quebec.

Actually, I'm not really a XC guy, although I am pretty fit and I don't mind riding up hills. I used to race DH briefly, but these days I love technical singletrack, fast flowy trails, pump tracks and Bmx tracks. I hit small jumps or bigger jumps if they're tables, I like doing a bit of everything I guess, and I like going fast and scaring myself. Hey, if it's bikes, I'm into it. I'll drop you a line once I meet my girl in quebec and maybe we'll see you on the trails. Cheers, patrick

Seeing as you stated that you'll be in the Ottawa area, you should see about hooking up with some of us OMBA ( Ottawa Mountain Bike Association ) members. We do regular group ride in the South March Highlands, which is a technical paradise.

Here's a link to our website.
